One of those guys is on Rescue Me, which airs on FX in the US. (Showtime here in Canada IIRC)
If those channels are owned by A&E, then it would (better) explain their picks to be host.
For the record, I remain cautiously optimistic.
Is Andy Wilman involved at all? If not, then I'm a little worried.
Is episode 1 going to be the one with Carolla and Stromer?
I'm excited that there will be a third car show for me to watch. However, from what I've heard of Foust, not so sure this is gonna be a great show. Obviously this can't and won't compete with BBC's Top Gear, but hopefully it'll be more entertaining that the rest of the junk American TV Car Shows.
Tanner popped up on Supercars Exposed on Speed, if you want to get a taste of what he's like as a presenter on topic. He may be a good driver but he's got the personality of cardboard covered in oatmeal. Think an American Tiff. It could be that he has a personality but it's obscured by editing, but he is a racing driver therefore I think no, he has no personality.
Plus the production of the show is super-annoying, complete with all the hackneyed pimp-my-ride effects such as video tape rewind and fast forwarding, et al. And, oh, did I mention it's not entertaining?
I'm pumped for Top Gear US. There's just one thing I demand from them.
They need to use "Jessica" as the theme song. A different version from the TGUK one.
